Weekend Reading, 9.19.20.

Happy weekend! This photo is from last weekend at our little “camp” in the Finger Lakes. I got a few questions about our rental, here’s the link! I got a lot of questions about what we did, etc. but we stayed at the property the whole time, opting to cook vs. eat out. Between the pandemic and three kids under the age of five that felt like the right choice. How was your week? I have definitely been running on empty and feeling a bit depleted so have earmarked this weekend as a selfish weekend. I’m planning on holing up and reading at least two books, making my air fryer bagels, doing a bunch of (at home) yoga, and just loading up on quiet time.

As an introvert this is definitely how I recharge my batteries and I am very excited for to be super lame, lazy, and cozy. Also, who watched the Paris Hilton Documentary? I watched it and really enjoyed it. It gave me a lot more respect for her. PS – if you missed it yesterday, make sure you enter my cashmere giveaway! Excited about that one.

    I always enjoy checking these lists, but am happy you included helping Oregon in this one! This last week was heartbreaking in our state. We finally got some rain in PDX and can head back outdoors which we are thankful for. But your message to vote and consider our climate is so, so important. Thanks Grace!

    Did you know that Dr. Bader now has a face oil. I am a fan and use the cream and the rich cream. I just ordered the oil. Cult beauty has 20%off skincare now with free shipping right now.

    My local pharmacy, Walgreens had the new Cover Girl clean and I bought 2 of the powders. Once I figure out my colouring, I am going to LOVE it.
    I always mix high and low with my make up and have always loved CoverGirl TruBlend powder, this new clean one is even meeting feeling and coverage.

    I was reading about the Paris documentary and started to have a different view of her, but then Hitha posted a link about Paris’ consistent use of the n word and a history of other racist comments. So …. now my view has changed again.
